Question about 2008 Dodge Avenger
My car will not come out of park
Try the override in the cup holder (see owners manual) More than likely, a small spring come loose inside the shifter assembly. To remove - Pull up on the shinny PRND cover, the rest of the covers unsnap (use small screwdriver), pull up on shifter knob (might need to wiggle a little), Look for the pink plastic thing on the left. It should have a spring that pulls back on it when you shift into reverse. If this is missing, unbolt the four nuts that hold the assembly to the floor, look for the old spring. If it's gone you can cut a new one to size and hook it back on. If yours is like mine, the small pink hook is broke and you will need to drill a small hole in it to have something to clip the new spring to. By the way, I had to do all this with the assembly in the compartment as I was unable to remove it completly. Not enough room. I removed the coin tray in front of the shifter, ParkReverseNutralDrive thing, grey cover that surrounds the coin tray, 4 mounting nuts, and the cable that attaches to the pink piece of plastic that Chrsler should have put a little more effort into designing. ARG! Good luck.

Get the transfer case checked. If that's not it, you may need a new tranny.
